Roots and Acknowledgements

The main idea of exploring authentic movie language and assembling movie corpora took root in 2005, when MARIA PAVESI started directing and developing what is now called the Pavia Corpus of Film Dialogue at the University of Pavia (Italy). I would like to express my great esteem for her valuable work and my sincere gratitude for her constant support throughout the years.

I would like to express my immense gratitude and esteem to DOUGLAS BIBER and RANDI REPPEN for offering time, collaboration, and friendship. Douglas Biber’s ideas, methodology and meticulous comments have had a major impact on all my work since I was a visiting scholar at Northern Arizona University (Arizona, USA) in 2008.
